Daughters of the American Revolution
“Ondawa-Cambridge Chapter was formed on November 8, 1894,
the 12th in New York State and 125th in the nation,
when 12 women met at the home of Minerva Buck McKie. In 1895 the chapter
sent its first delegate to Continental Congress. Lucinda Fowler Fish, a
“real daughter” whose father was a minute man, was a member of the
chapter as was Mary Robertson Moses (“Grandma Moses”) who
memorialized our battlefields and countryside in her famous artwork.
members represent a wide area, including parts of Washington and Rensselaer Counties and Bennington, Vermont. Many are active volunteers in their
communities. The chapter works closely with the Cambridge Historical
Society and Museum the Bennington Battlefield Visitors Center in Walloomsac, New York. We meet the first Friday of the
month at 1 p.m., March through June and September through December. Each
July, we enjoy a chapter outing to local points of interest.”
